Artist's Description

The Brocken Railway (German: Brockenbahn) is one of three tourist metre gauge railways which together with the Harz Railway and Selke Valley Railway form the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways railway network in the Harz mountain range of Germany.

It runs from the station of Drei Annen Hohne at 542 m (1,778 ft), where it joins the Harz Railway, via Schierke and the Bode River valley to the summit of the Brocken, the highest mountain of the Harz at 1,141 m (3,743 ft) and part of the Harz National Park.

During the Cold War era, the mountain was off-limits to non-military personnel, though the Brocken Railway was still in use for the supply of the garrison at the summit until 1987. Since German reunification and the subsequent re-opening of the line for the public on September 15, 1991, the steam trains have become popular for thousands of tourists every year, offering a convenient access to the top of the Brocken.
